Welcome to the Oakland LGBTQA group for recreational and competitive volleyball! We are an all-inclusive group for people of all backgrounds and skill levels to come together and play without fear of hate, persecution, or ridicule.
WHAT TO EXPECT
When you show up, say hi to an organizer and tell them you are here! If courts are full, players who RSVP’d will be given priority. A 1$ contribution for operations is always appreciated.
On occasion, play will be divided into two levels, recreational and competitive.
• Have played in a league environment and have been rated B or above • Have the basic knowledge of passing, setting, and serving/hitting • Know how to play offensive and defensive positions
Everyone should be having fun Our mission is to include everyone who wants to play at a wonderful public space and have fun while doing it. Help us get there by practicing respect, self-awareness, and generosity.
Be considerate and go with the flow We want to provide space for all levels of play. Help us by recognizing your own level, respecting others, and seeking a balance of skills on teams.
Be generous More people joining means more organization, time, and money. Feel free to bring food and drinks to share and please donate if you can.
Setting up and cleaning up Help setting up and packing up is always appreciated. Let’s show Oakland our respect by picking up your own trash!
NOW, SHANTE YOU PLAY!
